    So saddened. An exemplary family I have the privilege to know for several years. Totally dedicated to others. May the entire King family be comforted in this tragic loss of an exceptional Tzadik.

    BDE such a special yid. Always looking out and taking care of any yid in need.

  • Heartbroken says:

    He was a special special yid he will be sorely missed. Left over wonderful exemplary children

  • chaim pinchus rubenstein says:

    BDE. Everything the previous comments stated I can attest to. I pretty much lived with the King family for almost 14 years in Nashville, Tn. while I attended law school and then practiced law there.

    He attended my wedding in Memphis, Tn.

    My sympathies go out to all his family. His sons and daughter were like brothers and a sister to me. Mrs. King was like a mother.

  • So, So, Sad says:

    Oish, what a loss.
    I was very friendly with Raking for many years. I was always amazed how the Satmar Dayan, Shlit”a, was always so Mechabed him in shul. Always going out of his way to say, Good Mirning Dr. King. Almost EVERY SINGLE DAY.

  • Yerachmiel Taub says:

    He was a VERY HOLY MAN. Together with his Chashova wife, may she be gezunt and have the strength to continue, were MOSER NEFESH their entire lives to bring their wonderful and holy children up in the true DERECH HASHEM. I knew him for almost 50 years, and felt his love as if I were his only child.

    He was an EISH NISTOR and will be truly missed.

    May he be a MAILITZ for his family and all of Klal Yisroel. Dr. King, please ask the RIBONO SHEL OALUM to bring the Moshiach already.

  • Kenny says:

    It is very sad to see the King family go thru this difficult time. I hope to see Avid King from Madison Pharmacy have no more pain!

  • Eli says:

    So true so sad, wonderful chashuva family. Hashem should comfort them all at this time.

    BTW mistake – Avi King from King’s Pharmacy not Madison Pharmacy
